But all the wabbits are gone, Pigman, and they don't want to talk to you anymore. Silly wabbits--bye bye.

ugh. snoozing on lma once-again. :(

Well, at least there is fantasy baseball to keep me occupied.

I'm listening to more GD than ever, but I've lost the vigor for GD chat.

Holy Crap! I think you've stumbled on the hidden genious that has been at work here as of late. The more ridiculous and nonsensical things get around here, the more time we have to spend listening to music. It appears that great things are being wrought by what on the surface appears annoying and irritating. We are being channeled back towards what we truly love by that which we first found repulsive. Brilliant!

There be method in this madness?

Hey--question. Wasn't this forum originally a part of the general music forum? When did it spin off--around the time of the great clampdown? I vaguely recall peeking into the old forum while downloading--it was quite crowded with all sorts of posts about all sorts of things. The Dead threads were all about how the Dead sucked for pulling the sbds, how a lot of folks were going to boycott the band, and so on--and, of course, those posts defending the band.

Seems that the forum was born out of the ashes of that very angry debate in which quite a few posts were way over the line. My point? This is a definite improvement!!!!!!!!

I guess so. The rules are too rigid for me here at GD Forum.

You must be either the delicate genius or the village idiot to make a post.

And here I am, stuck in the middle w/ you.

Just like TV's political debate shows, it's all about black and white here. Which is bullshit. The truth is GRAY!

There has to be balance between total incoherrence and complete snobbery. Right? Well, I can't find the middle here anymore.

Very sorry to hear that, as I do count you among those who's opionions I have come to value. All I can ask is that you don't dissapear completely, please do stop in now and again to share some thoughts. There are those of us out there who DO appreciate thoughtful and pertinent input.

Sorry, that was not a letter of resignation. Just a note of dis-interest, which I am certain will pass.

I am always down for a good GROK. Perhaps the immediacy of the GROK-Chat and the fact that it is intertwined w/ a group-listening experience, is just more my cup 'o tea.

I do miss a guiltless hello to friends here tho. My buddy Johnny has posting been here often, and I've been reluctant to post a greeting.

Did anyone ever consider the more one comments and complains about nonsense, of which I am an enthusiast, the more some might be tempted to keep posting such nonsense?

And, good sir--what would be the middle? You still haven't responded to the original question.What is missing for you, or are you just bored with it all? Idiots and snobs? I wonder if that is sometimes synonymous. if you do not like the current posters, why not be active in generating more posts--I notice that you are a replyer and not a generator. Why not start threads that are to your own liking? or jump on the good ones?

You know, I have gone back over the past six months and I really don't see much that is different--except that a handful of regulars have chosen to remain in the shadows rather than stick up for what they wish to see on this board. There have been dubious posts, trivial posts, pompous posts since the beginning of this board. There always will be unless you adopt a set of rules and regulations--the very thing you decry! So, let the bad posts roam with the good ones--there will always be good ones--and there will be more good ones if folks like you stick around.

idiots? Shit--we're all idiots when you consider how much time we devote to a single rock and roll band that has been defunct for 12 years. But we are loving idiots nonetheless, and most folks here seem to enjoy what goes on.

I guess the catch 22--the paradox--is that threads like this do end up detracting from the energy; but they become necessary when that energy comes under fire. Kinda sucks, eh?

How nice it would be if those who feel let down by the current state of affairs would hop back on their steeds and post what they want and realize that the energy is still there. If the board is flat, it is as much because many of the great posters have left and taken the fizz with them. Put the fizz back, my friend, and drink up.

For a week or so SDH took a break and, quite frankly, I missed his energy. His return has blown (why do I always end up using that word in reference to him?) a fresh breeze back into the proceedings. Look--if all the sailors jump ship, then the ship is doomed. If the same sailors climb back on board, they can steer the ship anywhere they like.

High flow--and everyone else--get back on the ship before it founders. Give it a chance. Make of it what you will, or let it die a slow, lingering death. The paradox is that the board is weakened by the absence of those who feel it is week.

But if you turn your back on it, you only diminish it more.

And that would be a shame.

i am just in need of a serious break man - too much goin on in "real life" - i'll be back - i lurk occasionally and post here and there - but i just can't be as involved right now - plus the board when i lurk just seems to totally suck right now - just my personal opinion - probably has to do with me being sick of it.

To be honest--I can understand that being sick of it feeling, Mr. Wolf. You have been posting and replying for a long time, and all things get stale after a while.

I hope all is going well on the homefront, and I hope you will return at least time to time to stir it up a little!

I hear what you are saying ghost. My post was less a complaint and more of a check-in regarding my current status here at GD forum.

Once upon a time, I was very active in originating threads.

Not to say you weren't. I just skimmed your posts and noticed that you had much to say. I just hate to see the whole thing fall apart.
